This is a good place to get a sense of Romania's history although sadly it appears the 1989 Revolution Exhibition is no longer on display. It starts with a pre Ancient and Ancient Military history exhibition but gets more interesting in the next building which shows the Romanian Military History Exhibition and the Medieval, Modern and Contemporary Weapons exhibition.

The museum is composed by some buildings who looked like some halls to me and a big park between them where there are many cannons, tanks and other military vehicles exposed. The museum have a lot...

The museum was very interesting. They have many many items on display and explain the history of Romania using these items, maps and scale models. The only downside was there was no information in English (nor German) and there was a lady in one of the rooms listening to music, eating(?) and talking whilst she was there to take care... More

They had some wonderful displays in the Museum. It was amazing to see what could actually be made during that time period. Creativity at its best.

It seemed a little old, all the statues and models are a little "rusty" but still the museum is well organised and has an... More

The displays are fascinating, the court yard houses an exciting array of 20th century military hardware including a German WW II tank and... More
